New Project: New and Improved Water Feature.


Recently I finally got to a project I've had planned for quite a while. I've had this water feature in for over a year now and realized that I needed to make it larger so that I would not have to constantly add water to keep it running. I also needed to put a larger pump as the one that came with the fountain pushed just enough water to spill over the top of the urn. I found a round 35 gallon preformed basin at Home Depot for $30 and a pump that would circulate up to 700 gallons per hour at Lowe's. With shovel and pick in hand, I was ready to get it done!

Basin installed, leveled, new pump added and urn placed and leveled and basin filled. Stones placed around the basin and the power cord connected.  The final result.
